Dear QGIS devs & packagers

- --- Note to casual readers --- Please do not pre-announce this release -
give the packagers and release team a chance to do their thing so that
people hearing about the release have a fair chance of finding a
package, reading all our press material etc. --- End note ---

Today I have branched QGIS 1.2.0 'Daphnis' for release. It would be
great if you can assist by making packages for your preferred platform.
The branch can be checked out at:

svn co https://svn.osgeo.org/qgis/branches/Release-1_2_0 qgis-1_2_0

Source tarballs can be obtained from here:


Please do not commit anything to the release branch except packaging
related tweaks.

If you make a package please be so kind as to send me an email with
details of where I can download the package. Please make sure the
package is wgettable since I do not have the bandwidth to first download
all packages to my home pc and then up again to the download server.

If you are able to make packages for unlisted platforms / distros please
let me know so that we can avoid duplication of effort.

I would like to make the release announcement around the 30th of August,
so it will be great to have as many packages as possible ready by then.

SVN (Trunk) is open again for general commits - please seek guidance
from Marco Hugentobler (PSC Code Manager) if you are planning any major
code changes.

The timeline for our future releases is, as always, available here:


Many thanks to all the developers, testers, bug fixers, bug reporters,
document writers, translators and users that help to make QGIS a reality.

Lastly can I call on the release team to put together visual changelog,
press announcements etc. ready for the release date? I will send you an
email when the packages are ready and you can start broadcasting

Best regards
